‘Brave’ Clip Brawl

'Brave' Teaser Poster from Disney/PixarCourtesy of Walt Disney Studios New Zealand and Pixar Animation Studios, we have a newly released clip from Brave, which bows into theaters on June 22, 2012.

The clip, titled ‘Brawl,’ overlaps just a bit with the previously released ‘Suitors‘ clip. In the latter clip, we are introduced to Young Macintosh, Young MacGuffin and Wee Dingwall as they are presented to King Fergus and Queen Elinor for consideration of Princess Merida’s hand in marriage. The new clip carries the scene even further with an ensuing brawl that the bear king is forced to put an end to, though a certain set of triplets don’t necessarily seem to agree with that logic.
